Hi I'm Steve Castro

I love to shoot and I am a full time gunsmith. I know that God lives and Jesus Christ is my Savior, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married to a wonderful woman and have three children and two grandchildren. I love to hunt, fish, and all shooting sports. I work as a full time gunsmith which I have done since 1976. I grew up in the Napa Valley in Northern Ca. but we moved to Mesa Az in 1996 so that we could raise our children in an area with a fantastic school system and the gospel of Jesus Christ was strong. We are not sorry that we made the move to Arizona and love it here, (at least in the fall, winter, and spring). Hobbies include woodworking, cooking, and just relaxing and watching a good movie. My family is the center of my universe......

Why I am a Mormon

I learned about the Gospel from my younger brother who became the first member of our family to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A year later he baptized my Mother and Father and that really made me sit up and take notice because we were raised as pretty strict Catholics. As I studied and prayed to know the truthfulness of this church, the Spirit bore witness to me that it was indeed true. It was the most incredible feeling to learn the proper order of prayer and then to receive an answer to my prayers. To know that God knows each one of us personally and wants to bless us if we live his commandments is a wonderful feeling.

How I live my faith

I thought that when I joined the church that it was going to be very hard to live a Christ like life. I couldn't have been further from the truth. I have learned that serving my fellow man, in both my church calling which has been working with the young men, and in my professional life as a Gunsmith, it is so rewarding to share my beliefs with those that I come in contact with. When you have something so special, you just want to share it with everyone that you care about. I know that this is the Lords true church on the earth today, and I have found that serving others is what brings me true happiness.
